Ben Chillwell, Chelsea wingback was in tears yesterday after he left the pitch on crutches amid world cup fears on a match yesterday against Dinamo Zagreb.
Chillwell has suffered a major set back as his world cup dream is about to come when he limped off the pitch yesterday on a Champions League match.
Chelsea Boss, Graham Potter confirmed that early signs for the defender did not look good for the wingback.
Chilwell was certain to make it to Gareth Southgate’s squad after impressing upon his return from a long-term injury.
Chelsea have suffered a huge blow as they will be facing Arsenal during the weekend.
England suffered a huge blow after Ben Chilwell had to be helped out of the pitch after picking up a hamstring injury.
Chillwell was in action yesterday in a match that Chelsea won 2-1 against Dinamo Zagreb in Stamford Bridge.
He went down at the end of the game, clutching his hamstring and was helped by Chelsea staff. The England star shed tears with the World Cup literally less than three weeks away.
The fullback had just recovered from an anterior cruciate ligament injury that he sustained last season. He had already worked his way back to full fitness and was almost certain to make it into Gareth Southgate’s squad.
“It’s a blow for us on an otherwise positive evening. It’s a blow to see him pull up like that, it’s not a great sight. So fingers crossed when we get the scan it isn’t bad, it can be not severe, but we have to have fingers crossed at the moment,” Graham Potter said.

This is the latest injury on table for Chelsea Football Club following Reece James, Wesley Fofana and Kepa Arrizabalaga.
However Gareth Southgate will have to wait and be hopeful despite the current situation for Chillwell not being promising enough.
